Be Strong


Be courageous and transparent before God. Open up to The Lord regarding your struggles. Give the battle to Him; exchange your struggle for His strength.

Be watchful at all times. Consider the spirit behind the negative emotions and difficult situations you face. The enemy prowls around like a lion and can gain a foothold when we drift.

Put on the full armor of God. Stand boldly on Truth...steadfast and fixed on the Gospel of Jesus.

Be alert and aware of your enemy. But, know with confidence The Almighty Lord of hosts is the recipient of your prayers...the source of your hope, faith and trust.

Be strong and let your heart take courage. Wait on The Lord...and run your race with supernatural strength of endurance.

Psalm 31:24

Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in the LORD.

1 Peter 5:8

Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." 1 Corinthians 15:1

Now brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, and in which you stand firm.

Galatians 5:1

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be encumbered once more by a yoke of slavery.

Ephesians 3:16

I pray that out of the riches of His glory, He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being,

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

Colossians 1:11

being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have full endurance and patience, and joyfully

Ephesians 6:10

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.

Hebrews 12:1

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off every encumbrance and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with endurance the race set out for us.

God Rescues


 When things around us don’t make sense and  are falling apart, and it seems we keep getting caught up in the storms of life, go to the sanctuary of God and find rest.

An amazing thing happens when we view our problems from His perspective. The problems that seem so big and hopeless from our human perspective look so small in light of Jesus. Because we know that the Living God of the entire universe can handle them.

God delivers all who call on His name.  Being in His presence will give us an eternal perspective.

Psalm 27:5

For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; In the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock.

Psalm 81:7

"You called in trouble, and I rescued you; I answered you in the hiding place of thunder; I proved you at the waters of Mariah.

Psalm 86:7

In the day of my trouble, I shall call upon You, For You will answer me.

Psalm 34:4

I sought the LORD, and He answered me And delivered me from all my fears..

Psalm 34:6

This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him and saved him out of all his troubles.

Psalm 34:16

Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivered him out of them all.

Trust


Trust is learned. And once one learns to withhold trust it’s hard to “unlearn.” If people aren’t trustworthy, our sense of security is shaken. It may be a parent who mistreated or didn’t protect you, a spouse that you trusted who let you down, or a close friend who betrayed you.

God wants you to learn to trust in a healthy way, with boundaries. He knows the pain you’ve experienced and the fear you have of ever trust anyone again.  That’s no way to live, though. That’s like living in a prison even though you are not behind physical bars.

Trust the Lord today. He is faithful today. Your Jesus, your precious savior, the lover of your soul will heal the parts of you that have trouble trusting.

Lord God,

I say that I trust You, God, but deep down I hold on to the reins. I can’t quite surrender all the control over my life. I try to control what happens around me. I don’t trust others to come through for me.  I try to do everything myself, but it’s not working for me! Help me learn to trust so that I can depend on others and upon you, Lord.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

Perfect Peace


 Abba God,

I pray that today and every day You will teach me how to replace my fears with faith... That I will cast my anxieties, fears, doubts and uncertainties upon You and allow Your Perfect Love to drive out those feelings that are not born of The Holy Spirit....that I will surrender my troubles to You, my Holy Heavenly Father, who is ALWAYS GREATER than any rejection, failure, criticism, emotion or enemy I may face today or tomorrow.

I pray that I will grow an enormous and abundant faith in You, an all-knowing, ever-present, always-loving God and walk in the confidence and sound mind that comes from knowing who You Are...that my trust in You will produce in me a faith that will motivate me to just let go of the things that hold me back, give them to you and receive peace beyond measure in my heart and mind.

I pray that I will cling to Your Truth and Your Promises and find refuge in You when I encounter dark valleys in my days, seasons and lives...place my trust in You, my Tower of Strength, for You Are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and You have repeatedly assured me that You are for me and will protect me.

Father, I thank You and praise You for Your Grace, Love, Mercy and Sovereign Protection in my life! I  thank You for the atoning Sacrifice of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, so that I  may be reconciled unto You...for my adoption and citizenship in Your Kingdom...for the security, peace, and comfort that You provide in my authentic identity in Christ!

In the name of my beloved Savior, Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.

God Is For You

We are victorious conquerors through Jesus Christ!

He has overcome all and the battle of our salvation is already secured. Nothing can separate Him from us!

So, have courage and faith and give your struggle to Him...stand and see The Lord work on your behalf. For, if God is for us, nothing can stand against us!

Psalm 118:6

The LORD is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me?

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!

God Is All Sufficient

Are you making time to not only acquaint yourself with, but to sincerely have an intimate relationship with your Abba God?

Have you discovered the peace, sufficiency, strength, sovereignty, love, healing, and mercy...the attributes and essence of your Maker?

Do you trust in His omniscience, receiving His grace and endurance when you run to Him, your Strong Tower of Strength?

Do you grasp how He planned your existence long ago and loves you so dearly that He provided the most holy and atoning sacrifice - HIS SON - so that you may be reconciled fully unto Him, sealed in His Book of Life?

Do you know that He is The God of all comfort, who lingers over the deepest desires of your heart; that He longs to work things together for your good, according to His Will for you in Christ?

Do you understand that He is the Most High, All-knowing, All-seeing, Self-sufficient, Healer, Provider, Banner, Sanctifier, Peace, Shepherd, Protector, and Lord over all, who is ALWAYS THERE?

If you knew Him more deeply would you approach The Throne of Grace with more confidence and trust in His Will? Would your faith, therefore, be unshakeable? Would you have peace that surpasses all understanding, regardless of your circumstances, because you know your God?

Oh, friends, let us seek Him with an insatiable desire so that we may more fully understand our LORD, and praise the inexhaustible abundance and omniscience of our Holy Father! That in Him, we may thrive and glorify Him...as we are made more fully complete into His likeness. For, from Him and through Him are ALL things, and all glory is to Him, forevermore!

Job 28:24

...for he views the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens.

Isaiah 44:24

This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb:

I am the Lord, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself...

Psalm 139:1-4

You have searched me, Lord,and you know me.

You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.

You discern my going out and my lying down;

you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.

Do Not Grow Weary

Sowing in The Spirit means we most certainly will endure sorrow...but take comfort, brethren, for our tears will yield an everlasting harvest of joy and peace.

Let us rise up and not grow weary in our calling...for The Lord our God has sealed for us an eternal glory.

Hallelujah!

Psalm 126:5

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

2 Corinthians 4:17

For our light and temporary affliction is producing for us an eternal glory that far outweighs our troubles.

John 16:20

Truly, truly, I tell you, you will weep and wail while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy.

Matthew 5:4

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Revelation 7:17

For the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd. He will lead them to fountains of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

Rejoice! God Is Still On The Throne


Beloved, take heart. Nothing slips through God’s hands of love. He holds the world in the palms of His hands. He knows all things. He changes the seasons and guides history. He raises up kings and brings them down (Daniel 2:21) to accomplish His purposes. He is light, and in Him, there is no darkness. The truth is – that light shines brightest in the darkness. Let us use this opportunity to regroup, refocus and look up. Never forgetting that God is still sovereign, still good, and still working things out for good. Christian, we are not of this world. We are citizens of heaven, and our KING IS COMING BACK SOON!

We live in a lost and dying world that desperately needs the light of Jesus. Now is the perfect time to remember The Great Commission and proclaim the good news of The Gospel and the living hope we have in Jesus.

If you are feeling discouraged today and distraught over injustices, take comfort in Psalm 27, Psalm 121, and The Book of Habakkuk. We serve a fiercely loving and just God.

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just.” Truer words were never spoken. God is on the throne, brethren. He’s got this!

So yes! This is the day that The Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.

 

God’s Jewels


 You are God’s precious Jewel. Jewels are precious things; the Hebrew word for jewels means a treasure. A treasure is made up of costly things: gold, and diamonds and rubies. To God, Christians are His jewels, His own special treasure! Yet so many of God’s children look in the mirror and see an ugly stone with no value or worth and feel defective, less than, blemished, stained and feel rejected.

Sadly many people suffer from self-rejection. The problem is poor vision.

When they look in the mirror they fail to see what God sees – a beautiful, brilliant gem, so they look to external features for self-acceptance failing to see their inner God-given worth.

“For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” Zephaniah 16:7

Strength In The Lord


May The Lord surround and strengthen us, and place us in His perfect peace.

May His power rest on us and be made perfect in our weaknesses...according to His omniscient might...and all for the richness of His glory.

May He anoint us and fill us with the bounty of His Holy Spirit, until our cup overflows.

And may we never be shaken in our trust in Him, as He completes the good and gracious work He ordained in us long ago.

You have enclosed me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.

~Psalm 139:5

But He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me.'

~2 Corinthians 12:9

I pray that out of the riches of His glory, He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being,

~Ephesians 3:16 ...being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have full endurance and patience, and joyfully...

~Colossians 1:11

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, that He considered me faithful and appointed me to service.

~1 Timothy 1:12

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

~Philippians 4:13

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

~Philippians 1:6

He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

~Psalm 62:2

Purified


It is in our greatest struggles that God has an opportunity to refine and customize us according to His purpose. When we exchange our human will for a willingness to serve Him, The Lord can do a mighty work in and through us. Oh, what The Father can accomplish with just one willing heart!

Lord, let us be the clay in Your hands...to serve as Your vessels...with humility and love. We know You don’t need us, but, Lord, we are blessed and honored to serve You and participate in Your divine plan. We praise You for Your workmanship and residence in our hearts. Show us how to surrender our weaknesses, and may Your perfect power rest on us, all for Your divine glory. In The Name of Jesus...Amen!

Psalm 51:17

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.

1 Peter 1:7

so that the authenticity of your faith--more precious than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire--may result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 12:9

But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me.

2 Corinthians 4:7

Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us.

Philippians 1:6

For I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Romans 8:29

For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers.

Romans 2:7

To those who by perseverance in doing good seek glory, honor, and immortality, He will give eternal life.

Born Again

The only relationship that determines one’s identity is a relationship with Jesus Christ. Spouses, families, service, church, friends, careers, and interests all contribute to our enrichment and maturation. However, only the One who created us determines who we truly are...and the only way to The Father is through the One who shed His blood at Calvary. Salvation through Jesus Christ is the indicator of authentic identity - an everlasting identity that fills every void, offers an abundant and fruitful life, and promises an eternal inheritance.

Galatians 3:26

You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

Romans 8:14

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

Romans 8:16

The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.

Romans 8:19

The creation waits in eager expectation for the revelation of the sons of God.

Romans 9:8

So it is not the children of the flesh who are God's children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as offspring.

2 Corinthians 6:18

And: "I will be a Father to you, and you will be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."

Galatians 3:26

You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 1:5

He predestined us for adoption as His sons through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of His will,

1 John 3:1

Behold what manner of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.

1 John 4:13

By this we know that we remain in Him, and He in us: He has given us of His Spirit.

1 John 4:15

If anyone confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

Seeing the Struggle Through.

“Never doubt in the dark what God told you in the light…..”

-V. Raymond Edman

God is always the same, and is always available to His children...at the tip top of the mountain, or the darkest of valleys, His love for us never changes.

It is in the season when we don't feel as close to Him that we have to step out in faith...trust Him to sustain us to see the struggle through...cling to His Truth and Promises...praise Him for His blessings of grace and salvation...and recall the lighted path He has placed our feet upon.

We must see these drought seasons as an opportunity to be still, give Him the battle and trust in what He is doing...as He enables us to reclaim our joy and moves us from faith to faith...in the glory of our salvation in Him.

Psalm 9:14

That I may tell of all Your praises, that in the gates of the daughter of Zion I may rejoice in Your salvation.

Psalm 13:5

But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness; My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

Psalm 54:4

Behold, God is my helper; The Lord is the sustainer of my soul.

Romans 8:26

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know how we ought to pray, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words.

Mark 14:36

"'Abba, Father,'"He said, "all things are possible for You. Take this cup from Me. Yet not what I will, but what You will."

Romans 8:15

For you did not receive a spirit of slavery that returns you to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship, by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!" Romans 8:16

The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.

Psalm 51:10

Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

John 17:24

Father, I want those You have given Me to be with Me where I am, that they may see the glory You gave Me because You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

1 John 3:2

Beloved, we are now children of God, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that when Christ appears, we will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is.

The Power of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a priority...it is a true expression of agape love and it honors God.

Understanding forgiveness is key and leads us to experience the fearless freedom it offers.

Forgiveness is not minimizing, excusing, or agreeing with the offense. We must see sin for what it is and recognize who the true offender is. Remember, our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness in high places...against the author of anger, fear, frustration, hurt, pain, sin and confusion.

Separating the sin from the sinner opens up our heart to forgiveness of our fellow human beings...it allows God to shed His Healing Light and Truth on the stronghold of the offense...and the darkness loses its power.

Forgiveness does not always lead to reconciliation. Jehovah IS Holy and He calls us to holiness. He also calls us to guard our hearts. There are certain relationships and circumstances that we should not expose ourselves to because they are not born of The Holy Spirit. We can forgive the offense...love and pray for the sinner...but must diligently separate ourselves from sin.

If we seek God and His truth...listen to the whisper of The Holy Spirit...He will enable us to forgive others and ourselves...lead us to the people, places and situations that He ordains, according to His purpose.

We have certainly all sinned and fall short of God's glory. But, as believers, we are to be imitators of Christ. And if we make forgiveness a priority, we will indeed experience peace, healing, wholeness and freedom...and honor Him with a clean heart.

Matthew 6:14

For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you.

Ephesians 4:32

Be kind and tender-hearted to one another, forgiving each other just as in Christ God forgave

Colossians 3:13

Bear with each other and forgive any complaint you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

Proverbs 4:23

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.


The Battlefield of Your Mind


Many struggles in life often are fought on the battlefield of our minds. That’s why James writes “What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?” (James 4:1). That’s why we are exhorted in God’s Word to demolish any thought that goes against what God says is true about any given situation.

We are in a Spiritual battle and need to take every stray thought captive and repent, correct it and align it with the truth of God’s Word. If someone has hurt us or wronged us, and we are having hateful thoughts towards that person, we need to take that hateful thought captive immediately so that bitterness does not take root in our hearts and defiles us. (Hebrews 12:15)

We need to stop, realize what is truth in the situation, take responsibility for our wrong actions, ask for forgiveness, acknowledge when they are wrong, understand that we cannot change another person, offer forgiveness, release them to God and choose not to hate. The victory in the battle is won when we discipline our thinking, so it focuses on thoughts that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and are praiseworthy to God. (Philippians 4:8)

Negative emotions like anger, bitterness, hate, jealousy, fear, anxiety can kill us. They are joy stealers. They suck the life out of us and hinder us from living abundant lives in Christ. The good news is that we are not powerless. God has given us a choice to meditate on life giving thoughts or thoughts that bring death in our lives and render us defeated. Choose life! Choose victory!  Make it a practice to capture every negative thought and choose to replace them with good ones which come from the truth of God’s life-giving Word.

God Will Never Reject You


People who grew up in a home where the seed of rejection was planted have a difficult time trusting God. They transfer the negative characteristics of their caregivers unto God believing that they will never measure up, are not worthy to be loved, and are convinced that God would never approve of them.


If their earthly father rejected them, or if their mother was untrustworthy, if people in authority who were supposed to love and protect them hurt them, then God will reject them and is untrustworthy. That is a lie!

God wants to replace the lies that were planted and replant the word of truth in the soil of your heart.

Get to know God's character and His immense love for you through His WORD. Claim God's promises for your life. The heart of your Heavenly Father is for you to know the truth so that you will be set free.

“ I have loved you with an everlasting love.” Jeremiah 31:3

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God.”
1 John 3:3

“Moreover, I will make My dwelling among you, and My soul will not reject you.”
Leviticus 26:11

“In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:37-39

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

No matter what we face, The LORD is always near to His precious children. He will not fail, forsake or forget us. God is forever faithful, and He stands by His promises.

The LORD our God is mighty and more than capable...and He is always just a prayer away. Be assured He is the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. 

Let us call upon The Father for deliverance...be courageous, and find peace in the storm. May we be led to green pastures and still, living waters. 

Praise Jesus for His everlasting love...and for reconciling us eternally with our faithful Father!

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Isaiah 43:2

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you.

Psalm 32:6

Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.

Psalm 23:2

He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.

Psalm 23:4

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 34:4

I sought the LORD, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort.

1 Corinthians 1:9

God, who has called you into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.

The Battle Belongs to The Lord

What giants are you facing today?

Would it make any difference if you just stopped...got still with God...and considered that your conflict is not against flesh or things seen, but against spiritual wickedness in high places?

Would you get on your knees in obedience...align your will with His...and surrender it to The LORD of Hosts, Jehovah-Sabaoth?.

Why place your faith or trust in something less than the All-seeing, All-knowing, Almighty Creator? Why take on the battle without The Lord when there is so much power in His Name alone?.

Do not fear. Do not be dismayed or discouraged. Stand firm in your faith at the feet of Jesus. He is always with you and will NEVER leave or forsake you!

HE IS RULER OVER ALL principalities and powers, seen and unseen. He is bigger than any giants we will ever face. And the battle belongs to Him!

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go..

2 Chronicles 20:15

...Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.

1 Samuel 17:47

And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hands.

Ephesians 6:12

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places..

Psalm 20:7-8

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.

Psalm 124:8

Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth..

Deuteronomy 31:8

The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.

.

Reap In Joy

As we walk through seasons of life we will most certainly endure hurts, losses, disappointments, setbacks, and sorrow - but take comfort, for our tears will yield an everlasting harvest of joy, peace, and eternal life.

We are not without hope!

As dim as things may appear presently, be encouraged for our God is still Sovereign.

He is still on the throne!

You are still in His grip!

And He is still working things out for your good! .

He Is With You Always

Let not your hearts be troubled, dear brothers and sisters, for you are never alone. If even for a moment you feel lonely, abandoned or rejected, speak God's truth into your life.

The Sovereign Lord of Hosts and The Creator of ALL things will never leave or forsake you! You are not orphaned; you are not rejected; and you are never alone in Him. You have a family, an eternal inheritance and an identity sealed by the Author of love and life. You are loved! 

Through the intercession of Christ and the gift of The Holy Spirit, our Father is with us ALWAYS...in this temporary dwelling place and beyond. This is His eternal promise to His precious children!

John 14:16-18

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

John 14:3

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

Heal Me, O Lord

 

Heavenly Father,

You know the wounds that are in my heart….the lies, the faulty thinking, the fear, the sorrow left over from the hurts of my past.

I give them all to you and ask that you would heal me and release me from all emotional strongholds hindering me from experiencing the fullness of your love and grace.

I choose to live in Hope even when I feel hopeless. I will not harbor hate even when I am ignored. I will live with Your peace even when I am rejected.

I will love with Your love even when I am scorned. I will pray with Your heart even for those who hurt me. I will forgive with Your grace even when I’m betrayed.

I won’t focus on fear, for I know You are faithful. I won’t let heartache reign; I’ll move forward with faith..

I will stand on your Truth no matter the circumstances because I know that Your love never fails.

“I will give you back your health and heal your wounds,” says the Lord.

Jeremiah 30:17

“The Lord nurses them when they are sick and restores them to health.”

Psalm 41:3

“Lord, help!’ they cried in their trouble, and He saved them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them. snatching them from the door of death.”

Happy New Year!

As we reflect back on the past year, and look forward to the new year, let us never lose sight that the Lord is in our midst.

He is there in the good times, the difficult times, the lean times, the times of fear and uncertainty, always reminding us through His Word that our hope is not found in what is seen but what is unseen. Our hope is in Jesus - our precious Savior.

No matter the season of life - He is there! He will walk us through every season. Even when things don’t make sense and we can’t see a way out- He is there!

He brings light to the darkness, hope to the hopeless, guides, protects, provides, comforts and fills us with His love and grace. We are never alone.

So let’s enter into the new year with confidence trusting that whatever the year brings - The Lord is there!!’ Hallelujah!!!

Happy New Year friends! πŸ™✝️☝πŸΌπŸ’ž
